Connect to the community is also different in both. A great editor may not be good in compliance like filling up various forms, sending all kinds of bills/documents to the organisation (WMIN or WMF etc etc) There you require a off-wiki person who can do followup to get all the documents, interact with various organisations/agencies/consultants etc. Deciding on various grants, giving infrastructure support to editors is an off-wiki activity too. Running an organisation is completely different than editing wikipedia. And of course your opinions are respected. WMIN will have its own opinion on various issues.
